Senior Center Construction Under Way
After almost a decade of work and effort, construction began last fall on the North Beach
Oceanfront Center, which will house the UNIDAD Senior Center at 7251 Collins Avenue, Miami
Beach in Bandshell Park. Demolition began in September 2010.
The all glass building is located right beside the oceanfront sands with a clear view of the water.
This one of a kind facility is a unique and innovative setting for senior center programming.
The UNIDAD Senior Center will offer seniors a range of activities and services, including
nutritious meals, employment training and placement, counseling, support groups, health
information, nutrition/health screenings and assistance with immigration-related issues. In
addition, the Center will provide opportunities for cultural enrichment, exercise/fitness classes -

significant factors in an active lifestyle correlated with greater longevity, independent living,
and good health.
